Anheuser-Busch announced Monday (Feb. 14) a new program aimed at sponsoring women who race in NASCAR.
The Accelerate Her program will feature sponsorship from the Busch Light brand in NASCAR starting in 2022, with public relations and media value pledged in addition to sponsorship support.
The program has initially announced support for national series drivers Natalie Decker and Jennifer Jo Cobb, plus racers in other divisions across the country including Amber Balcaen, Toni Breidinger, Melissa Fifield, Stephanie Moyer and Brittney Zamora.
Of the group, Breidinger and Balcaen have announced a full-time ARCA Menards Series schedule in 2022 for Venturini Motorsports and Rette Jones Racing, respectively, and Moyer is running in the ARCA Menards Series East.
The only woman currently racing full time in a NASCAR national series missing from the announcement: Hailie Deegan, who drives for David Gilliland Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
